WHO IS POSITIVE TRACKS:
Their mission is simple - They teach youth how to make change through the power of athletics. They call it Sweating for Good.
WHY ARE WE RUNNING:
Positive Tracks is a non-profit that hits really close to home for BT (dad) and I. Growing up in a family where being active was non-negotiable (whether it be sports or just enjoying being outside playing) both my brother and I came to appreciate the many benefits it provided us! That said, we had a little bit of an extra push towards that since my dad is a college football coach. Spending time with him during the season usually meant heading to watch practice where we could also run around and see the hard work paying off for those athletes. Since time with him was typically limited due to a demanding schedule, my special time with him became running. He ran my first 1 mile fun run in 3rd grade and my first marathon when I was in college. To this day, my favorite times with him are when we are outside running!
Knowing how important athletics, activity and community service are to ourfamily, we both felt this was a great way to fundraise for something we're both supporters of while also giving us an excuse to enjoy a few long runs together!
Help us grow the Positive Tracks movement by joining Team Positive Tracks at the 2019 Covered Bridges Half Marathon.
WHY: Our youngest generation is inheriting a society with major challenges, from climate change to revitalized racism. Enter Positive Tracks to help young people create solutions through the power of sport and cause advocacy.
HOW: Positive Tracks teaches youth how to sweat for good, for any cause they choose. They provide free counsel on fitness, team building, community engagement, cause advocacy, event planning, fundraising and promotion. Youth are playing kickball for climate change; spinning for social justice; shooting hoops for hunger. If kids can dream it, Positive Tracks can help them make it happen: for any cause, from any corner of the country.
YOUR INVESTMENT = STRONG, EMPOWERED YOUTH + A BRIGHTER FUTURE
